About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6-8 / Check-in 4 pm / check out 11 am

Two bedrooms upstairs and one queen bed in the unfinished, (but clean), basement cottage located just a few blocks from the park, uptown where there is a Subway, Welsh's Pizza, great steaks at 5th Quarter, 3 bars, Main Street Thriftique, Uptown Pix (gifts and more), and Ace Hardware, all on Main Street. We have just totally renovated the 2 bedroom house with new stainless steel appliances, full bathroom, a full bed, dresser, and flat screen TV in one bedroom and a queen bed, dresser, and a flat screen TV in the second bedroom. Both bedrooms also have cedar closets. The living room has a small pub table for dining and a futon couch for extra sleeping space. There is a $20 per person charge for adults over 18 on groups of 4 or more with a maximum occupancy of 6 adults and 2 children. Cleaning fee is $35. On 2 or more nights or with usage of more than one bedroom. Cleaning fee is $55 and up to $75 on stays of 5 days or more. There is a 42' flat screen TV with dvd player and free Wi-Fi. The kitchen has all the utensils and cooking supplies you would need to enjoy your stay. There is a basement, with a 3rd queen bed, you can do your laundry and hide out in case of good ol' Nebraska thunderstorms. You can protect your car in the attached garage. There is an new infrared two burner grill in the garage you can roll out in case your in the mood for a burger or a steak! We supply towels, washcloths, iron and ironing board, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave. If you need something call and I see what I can do! You're located only a block away from the Legion Hall which will soon be replaced by the multi-million dollar Community Center with indoor wellness center and exercise equipment, daycare, and large multi-purpose hall for large events. Pender is a booming little town with an RV park at Blue Ox Manufacturing, city pool, the new Pender Community Hospital, local Chevrolet dealer Janke Auto, Pender Implement, a modern ball field, and PoPo's restaurant for daily family dining.

About Jim Rutar / manager

My parents purchased the house as a rental and after several long term tenants it needed some major updating so after remodeling the entire house the decision was made to try putting it in the nightly rental program since the local motel has closed. The income from the property all goes to my mom who is in the center of the picture with all my siblings. She is on a fixed income so your patronage is highly appreciated!

Jim Rutar / manager purchased this cottage in 2002

What makes this cottage unique

Vs. a Motel you have a full kitchen, three beds, all the comforts of home for the price of a motel room. If you like you can cook or grill your own meal. There is a garage for security of your car and so you don't have to scrape ice in the winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Awesome, small town USA place to stay if visiting local, or traveling through. I used to travel often in my job, and I would put this stay right up with any major city I've stayed in.

Awesome get away in a small town that's still rocking!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 9 days. The property is remarkably well taken care of. The small town has several bars and places to eat. A large grocery store and gas station top off anything you could need.

Luv This Place

  • 5 of 5

This was our families 5th time staying at this charming, quiet, and affordable rental. It is always clean and has everything you need. If you do lack something the owner is very accommodating. Our 2 grand-daughters refer to it as the "little house" and they really enjoy our time spent here. This trip they "adopted" a stray cat and named him "Boots". They fed it so in made regular visits to our door. We had 4 adults and 2 children staying. In addition, we entertained other people so it has plenty of room. Since our last stay, the owner has added a super wooden deck in front of the house. Try it, you won't be disappointed. Just don't rent it when we need it. :-)

Our perfect vacation home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

The Rutgers Pender rental home is the place you want to stay, whether you're visiting family or just passing through. Convienant, clean, dependable and cozy, this vacation rental will not disappoint. It is stocked with all the neccessities (and the SOFTEST towels around!!!) including cable, Netflix and a great selection of DVD's. We have rented this house for the last three years when visiting family in Pender and look forward staying in this home every year. Thanks Rutgers!

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Pender. The house was in fantastic condition and provided everything we could have asked for. I even enjoyed the attempt at Hawkeye decor in the Husker bedroom :-)

Thanks for everything!!

Comfortable, well kept cosy home

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 2 nights in this home. It was clean, stocked, and comfortable. It has two regular bedrooms on the main floor, and one in the relatively unfinished basement. It looks like it has been recently remodelled in a tasteful way. A Keurig coffee maker was ready to go. The towels were soft and plush. It was a pleasant stay in a comfortable house. I would stay again without hesitation.
